    Yep I have older TVs
    So I need a stick to turn old tv to smart tv
    got a Roku and Firestick, both basic versions
    we only pay for internet $60 and AmazonPrime $10 and Netflix $10(can get both of their content from Tea TV but we have subscriptions so others can use them easily)

    Saving this for later. Im still using kodi (when it works).Side question: any good 3-d movies I should buy? Bought a 70” tv off a guy for $100 who was moving and it has 3d on it.

    Gravity was great in 3d at the movies. Do you have to wear the glasses?

    What iptv app do you use. I'm having a hard time finding a reliable one lately.

    Yes. He gave us two sets. I watched a little bit of regular tv on it in 2d and it seems like a good picture.

    With android boxes, all you need is a few apk's (think apps) installed that have access to bt1 and bt2 sport channels. All ufc events are on those channels (ppv, espn+). Install tvtap, livenet.tv, freeflix hq, then a browser like Firefox and you're golden. If you want to watch movies and TV shows/series (not live tv) then you can install morph tv, tv zion, jetbox, cyberflix tv, and kokotime. Really no reason for cable anymore.
